HackTO: Second edition

This past May, the Ideeplex hosted HackTO: an all-day hackathon for developers, startups and general techies.

The idea behind HackTO is to round up various APIs from local startups and make them available to local developers. Working in teams or solo, the developers compete to create the coolest application using one or more of the APIs made available. And just to make things interesting, they need to do this in just a few hours.

We loved hosting HackTO with CanPages, FreshBooks, OPENApps and PostRank. It’s amazing to see what can be accomplished in a few hours with a laptop, an internet connection, teamwork and coffee! We had some really cool apps come out at the end of the day, not to mention some great new connections and friendships.

In fact, the last HackTO event was such a success that we’re doing it all again. Soon. We’re thinking September. How does that work for you folks?

Date, location, prizes, and available APIs are all TBD at this point, but we just wanted you to know that the cogs of productivity are now officially spinning.

If you are a startup in the GTA with a cool API and would like to participate: please drop me a line at mstathopoulos (at) ideeinc.com. Or just say hi! Developers, we’ll let you know when a signup form is available. For now, feel free to join us on crowdvine!

Hope to see you all in September!

Update: Registration is now open
